Update: Franchot's Tweets Focus on State Contracts
Comptroller Peter Franchot (D) is trying to raise the profile of the Board of Public Works on Twitter, the quick-missive networking system he announced he would use to post news and musings on last Wednesday's three-hour meeting.
His tweets told followers of a $100,000 contract the board approved for a swimming pool in Kent County, $376,078 to acquire parkland in Baltimore County and his vote for state funding for planning and design of State Center, a huge development planned in Baltimore.
Franchot also tweeted that the second-floor hearing room in the State House was "packed" and told followers that he is "always looking to add transparency" to debates over state spending: "...esp to #bpw which a lot of MDers don't know very much about." Then: "any suggestions for the next meeting?"
At 7:53 p.m the comptroller was home in Takoma Park:
"good #BPW meeting today, glad to be back home with my dog henry."
